Explained Before You Were Here

A rotten banana and a revelation

I can no longer see the color of
the futon in my dorm room and the
floor is scattered with corn flakes.
Is the underwear I found today on
my chair clean? Hopefully, because
I'm wearing them.
When my roommate Nora
recently declared, "Damn, we need
to clean the room soon," I was
ambivalent. But Friday, something
happened that actually made me
care.
I was sitting at my desk, absent-
mindedly pawingthrough week-old
piles of clothes with my foot. Face-
book had me completely distracted,
until I felt something strange and
sort of lumpy beneath the scarf
at my toes. Instantly intrigued, I
pushed it harder. It popped.
Now perturbed, I 'brb'-ed on
Google Talk and excavated all the
clothes and lifted the leg of my
chair. Hidden beneath both was a
thoroughly rotten banana. Clean-
ing the crusted fruit with a lonely
sock, I tried to estimate the time of

its demise,but realized that it didn't
matter.
Things are out of hand. Nora, I'll
clean this week. I promise.
SARA LYNNE THELEN
Bus stop Wonka fix
I was on my way home from
North Campus Saturday at around
2 a.m. when a small group of stu-
dents caught my eye through the
bus window. They were standing
on the sidewalk near the bus stop
on Fuller, but they weren't waiting
for the bus.
Instead, the group of about five
were huddled around a computer
that was sitting on a bench, focused
intently on whatever was on the
screen. The driver slowed to pick
them up, but the students waved the
bus away.
As we passed, all the passen-
gers looked out to see what was so
engaging. I only caught a glimpse,
but it was easy to identify was so

captivating: Willy Wonka and the
Chocolate Factory. I guess the
spring weather just gave them a
taste for snozzberries.
CAITLIN SCHNEIDER
All-holy Hash Bash
On Saturday, I wentto church, but
it wasn't Catholic, Protestant or any
other common denomination. It was
Hash Bash. The preacher was radical,
but I felt I could relate to his sermon.
"God forgive America!" he shout-
ed to the crowd gathered on Mon-
roe Street. "God forgive America
for illegalizing marijuana!"
I was having a religious experi-
ence, though I don't think it was
the sort that my hippie parents had
hoped. Later that afternoon, the
man's message no longer seemed
so profound. But I think I'll always
take these last lines of his sermon
with me:
"Every day, I thank the Lord, I
say Amen, and I light up!"

LSA Student Government offered free massages, green
beaks and bagels as the Diag yesterday in as effart to
help students relieve stress as finals week nears and the
semester winds to a close.

CORRECTIONS
" An article in yesterday's
edition of the Daily (Pow Wow
marked by protest) misquoted
University spokeswoman
Kelly Cunningham as saying
that a Native American tribe
seeking the return of ances-

tral remains needs to provide
biological and anthropological
evidence linking the remains
to the tribe. She said that
nobody has been able to prove
the cultural affiliation of the
remains, and that any findings
are subjectto review.
" The same article misidenti-
fied Rackham student Veroni-
ca Pasfield as Victoria.
" The article incorrectly
stated that all of the withheld
remains belonged to the Sagi-
naw-Chippewas. The remains
could belonglto several tribes.
* The story also incorrectly
said protesters roped off 1,428
seats. The number was 1,390.
" An article in the same
edition (Dems rule outpri-
mary do-over) incorrectly
stated Montana Gov. Brian
Schweitzer said he wouldn't
send his state's delegates
to the August convention if
Michigan's delegates aren't
seated. He said he personally
wouldn't go.
